    Best meal we’ve had in years. We were asked what we didn’t like (oysters in our case) then each dish was explained to us as it was served. Courses included a salmon eclair, veal, great cheeses and melt in the mouth desserts. Each dish as wonderful as the last. We were served different wines with each course and they all matched perfectly. If in this area you must go.

    Lovely restaurant where practically everything was perfect. The food and the service were perfect, making us feel like home with a personal touch. We will definitely come back to First. Thank you!

    We had a very nice welcome from the owners of this cosy restaurant. There were only a few tables occupied, so it was a bit quiet. But the owners of the restaurant made us feel at home immediately. There is a fixed 4-course menu, but with the different (intermediate) appetizers, there are 6/7 courses. The dishes are very tasteful, well presented and balanced. The cook gave a quick explanation of each dish at the table, which made it a very personal experience. We could really feel the passion for cooking. The value for money for the food is really fair, only the wines are a bit expensive (but nice wine-list). Great experience in this small town close to Utrecht, we will definitely come back.

    Fixed menu with exquisite presentation and wonderful taste sensations. Thoroughly enjoyed by all four of us. The only minor negative, which always irks me, is that they would only serve bottled water and tap water was refused.

    Erg lekker eten, zeer vriendelijke bediening en een fijne, huiselijke en ietwat chique sfeer. Extra leuk was de mogelijkheid tot verassende non-alcoholische drankjes, passend bij het menu.
